Federico Bosia graduated in Physics at the University of Torino in 1996 and obtained a PhD in Mechanical engineering in 2002 at EPFL (Switzerland). He has worked as research assistant and postdoc at the University of Roma “La Sapienza” (Italy), IFW Dresden (Germany), and the Politecnico di Torino (Italy). He has been working at the University of Torino in the Solid State Physics Group since 2007. He has published about 70 papers in leading international journals, including Physical Review Letters and Small. He was additional participant in an ERC Starting Grant project on the mechanical properties of bioinspired nanomaterials and is now working as third party on a FET Proactive project on Biofunctionalised Electroconducting Microfibres for the Treatment of Spinal Cord Injury.
